The culmination of over 25 years at bedsides and kitchen tables
Watch these two free video modules to explore a more holistic way to do dying, death and loss.
Introduction to Dying, Death and Loss.
Death is a great teacher.
I believe we all have the inherent capacity to dying, death and loss well. Many people have lost their familiarity and ability to be with people dying, caring for them at home, the after-death body care, and holding vigil with the body before burial or cremation.
Over the last 25 years I have guided and assisted families to reclaim these experiences into their own hands and hearts. I have seen over and over again how capable and courageous people are with good guidance to be able to consider the options and make the right decisions for them. You can not change the circumstances of the death but everything that happens after that you do have some control over. Watch our first free video module below to learn more.
Invitation to go deeper.
Amongst many other topics, the second free video module explains the difference between the role of the Deathwalker (which includes Doula work) and that of the Celebrant. You can be either or both of these roles.
It also discusses the importance of the personal Death & After-Death Care Plan and why completing it and sharing the information with your family or friends can be a great conversation starter. This will allow you and them to make choices affecting the moment of your diagnosis to your dying, death, and ceremony, including how you want them to celebrate you at your wake.
To get the most out of this second video module, we encourage you to purchase and complete the Death and After-Death Care Plan for yourself. It may be the best gift to yourself and those that love you.
